Nigerian actress, Maryam Charles has taken to social media to reveal the reason fans tattoo their favourite celebrities on any part of their body.
The movie star disclosed via her post that fans tattoo their favourite celebrity simply because of hunger and poverty.
According to her, fans tattooing celebrities on their body is caused by the increase rate of hunger in the country contrary to when fans tattoo celebrities due to the love they have for them but things have changed.
In her words:
“Too many things are wrong with Nigeria, we all know this. But the rate at which suffering and hunger has increased is shocking.
Everywhere you turn, you can see the hunger and desperation in the eyes of people. Coming online to beg for ₦2k has become a full time job for some. It’s sad to be honest.
The funny thing is we know why things are like this. But in the Nigeria you live in today, if you criticize them, you are a hater. God help us.
Why do you think these people are drawing permanent tattoos of their favorite celebs on their bodies? Why has it become a trend? Na hunger dey cause am. You really cannot blame them, all na hustle.”
